2. and 3. work as designed. httpd only changes the status for a worker to err if a request
failed in the middle or if it tried to assign a request
to this worker and that failed. Once the worker is in error state httpd will not try to assign
a new request to this worker for "retry" seconds
(see parameter explanation at
After that grace period the worker gets new requests
assigned again and will switch back to ok once it processed the assigned request successfully.

can manually failover ...

Considering my explanation above, what do you mean by "failover isn't working"?
